All Terrain Intro
Meribel

06-13 Jan 2024 (Sat-Sat) £1,038

This week is designed for skiers who are comfortable on most pistes but would like to get better when skiing steeper slopes, icy conditions, poor visibility, chopped up snow and bumps. You may have tried skiing off the sides of pistes but struggled and are keen to gain confidence in tougher conditions.

We will be honing your all-
round skills with drills and exercises on piste but will guide you into tougher terrain and getting lots of mileage in variable snow conditions. Four days of coaching plus one extended day and a day off giving lots of time to practice, or just rest your legs. 


This holiday is suitable for confident level 7 and higher skiers with a desire to improve while skiing tougher conditions such as icy slopes, steeps, bumps and chopped up snow. Relatively fit with the attitude and aptitude to progress.

A scenic town popular with the British, Meribel offers a vast range of skiing for all levels. As it is well linked with its sister resorts of Courchevel and Val Thorens you will be able to ski new runs every day during your holiday, and never be bored with the endless terrain available.

Coaching

 

The teaching will be comprised of four days (9-1:00) plus one extended days of coaching (9-3:30), allowing you a free day to rest your legs  or explore the Trois Vallees.

This holiday is suitable for confident level 7 and higher skiers who would consider themselves off-piste Aspirers willing to venture off piste on easy slopes (green-easy blue). Limited off piste experience, from none to a few days with a desire to improve while skiing tougher conditions such as icy slopes, steeps, bumps and chopped up snow. Relatively fit with the attitude and aptitude to progress.

The course will develop your performance in all fundamental skiing skills and will help you to ski better in steeper terrain, bumps, ice and soft snow skiing. Group size will be no more than eight per coach. We will endeavour to do video review a few evenings during the course.

Our accommodation partner for this coaching holiday is Ski Hame, an independent chalet operator that operates a number of chalets in the Trois Vallees. Chalet Grange á Charlotte is a lovely chalet located in the traditional hamlet of Meribel Les Allues. It sleeps up to 14 people in great comfort, featuring seven en-suite bedrooms (all with full size baths except one which has a shower).


It is a very comfortable and spacious chalet, with an open plan lounge/dining area, log fireplace and underfloor heating throughout. There are hair dryers in every bedroom, and a boot room with full size boot dryer/warmer for comfortable boots every day! There is free wifi internet access throughout the chalet. The highlight of the apres-ski facilities is a full size indoor hot tub.

Meribel Les Allues is a short journey from the centre of Meribel itself. Chalet staff will take you each morning to the main lifts in Meribel by private minibus, where you will meet the Inside Out Skiing coaches. At the end of each day we will agree a time and location for collection by the chalet staff, which could be Meribel or Meribel village, allowing for a different venue for apres-ski drinks before being taken back to the chalet. Alternatively, the free resort shuttle bus or Olympic bubble can be taken to and from the chalet should you wish to do your own thing.

Transfers to the resort

 

Transfer to and from Geneva Airport is available on a first come first basis from SkHame. Transfer to the resort will be by private minibus service. Pleascontact Ski Hame to confirm transfer timings before you book your flights. As a rough guide look at flights arriving Geneva airport between 12:00-14:00 and no later than 16:00 on arrival day to ensure you arrive in time for dinner in the chalet. There may be a wait for others on different flights as Ski Hame shares the transfer with other chalet operators but their service is very reliable and well coordinated.

Travel within the resort

 

The villages of Meribel Les Allues is approximately 15 minutes from the main Meribel lift complex. Ski Hame's chalet staff are extremely helpful and use a private minibus to take you to the slopes each day where you will meet the Inside Out Skiing coaches. A time and pickup point is agreed each day for collection after skiing, allowing you the choice of apres-ski venues.

In addition to Ski Hame's service there is also a free resort shuttle bus service to get you anywhere within the Meribel valley and taxis are plentiful if you desire a late night out.
